The big four politically inclined late-night hosts, however—Colbert, Kimmel, Meyers and Noah? Radio silence. Instead of addressing it on his popular Late Show program, Colbert relegated the Reade news to his new Tooning Out the News animated series, albeit in a rather playful bit poking fun at her upcoming interview with Megyn Kelly. “If we ‘believed all women,’ we’d have to also believe Megyn Kelly when she says Santa can’t be a proud black lesbian,” argues one of the animated anchors…

I’m reminded of October of 2017, one year after the Access Hollywood tape crash-landed onto our screens. That week, the Harvey Weinstein news broke, forever altering the conversation surrounding consent and power. And that entire week, these late-night hosts, men who have gleefully denounced Trump’s nauseating treatment of women time and time again, refused to so much as utter the name “Weinstein.”

Sexual assault and abuse of power is an abomination, regardless of the political party it’s attached to. If these late-night hosts intend to use their millions-strong platforms to censure the Trumps and O’Reillys of the world, and cast themselves as outspoken allies of the #MeToo movement, then they shouldn’t hold back from holding their fellow lefties’ feet to the fire.
